From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

EBV latent membrane protein 2 (LMP-2) refers to two viral proteins associated with Epstein-Barr virus.[1]

LMP-2A/LMP-2B are transmembrane proteins that act to block tyrosine kinase signaling. It is believed that they act to inhibit activation of the viral lytic cycle. It s unknown whether LMP-2B is required for EBV-mediated growth transformation, while different groups have reported that LMP-2A alternatively is, or is not needed for transformation.
